Getting ready for the new documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car?
" that is coming to theatres this summer, the PBS program NOW dedicates its show this week to discussing the film and electric cars
in general. This page
gives a brief description of the show itself and here's
a good timeline on the history of electric cars (going back to 1832!). Also, actress Alexandra Paul talks about leasing
the first EV1 (GM's electric vehicle
that is the main topic of the film) that was made available to the public here
. Lastly, here's
a Q&A with Daniel Sperling, who teaches at UC Davis and is director of the Institute of Transportation Studies. Sperling says he believes "we will see many of our vehicles running solely on electricity in the not-so-far-off future."
